And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

~My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. Psalm 62:5
I love that verse!
Notice that I am not the only one that talks to myself, King David did also. I can repeat this verse to myself each morning before heading out the door, My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from HIM. Encouraging and comforting words!
Tomorrow is yet another secular holiday; it's mother's day. Don't worry, I would say the same thing if there was such a thing as daughter's day. I appreciate my mother and strive to honour her each day (though I admit, I often fail), as I am commanded by my Heavenly Father. She knows I love her.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed.......Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:28-29.
That is my favorite verse for my mother.
However, tomorrow is Sunday. It is the Lord's Day. It is my Heavenly's Father's Day.
Deu 5:12 Keep the Sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.
Now if only people were half as ecstatic about honouring the Lord's Day as they are about mother's day, father's day, turkey day, you name it day.
This post is somewhat inspired by Revelation's latest post on Bible Studies and by today's tract passing. You may find it a bit random, I apologize.
Do people even know or realize who they are worshipping?
Act 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
I can't tell you how many times while tract passing, I get "christian? oh me too, greek orthodox". Or "catholic", "aahhh same thing". No, it is NOT the same thing, because it is NOT the same God. That is because folks today do not know their God. It is ignorant and vain worship.
Praise God, from now on, every time I will go tract passing, I will have Paul's saying in my head: "him declare I unto you".
Going back to Revelation's posting. Now, if people only knew the sad reality of their ignorant worship; that the devil is the god of their blind worship. Montreal’s teen punk population is at its peek. Let me remember...led zepplin, property of…, blood, skeletons, demon-like angels, etc....those are but a few t-shirts that I saw on young people during the one hour and a half of tract passing, today alone! Do these young folks realize who the god their worship is? He is the UNKOWN GOD.
I can't help but to think of Job. Job is the oldest book in the Bible. And yet, from Job we read " For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth". Job KNEW his God. He knew that His Lord is a LIVING REDEEMER who shall one day stand upon the earth (read Zech 14:14). Job did not ignorantly worship, he knew the Lord God of Israel.
So much is brewing in my mind right now. I’m just really psyched for next Saturday (and each day of the week), because I want to go out with “him declare I unto you” in the back of my mind. I want to declare Jesus Christ so that this entire city may come to the knowledge of Him – the true God and eternal life (1 John 5:20).
Therefore, it is far better to invest in our Heavenly inheritance so that we may be worthy to receive riches eternal.
